Recently, we visited Lobster Place in Chelsea Market in NYC and bought some fully-cooked lobsters which we brought home to eat. In my opinion, Lobster Place has the best lobsters outside of New England. With a name like that, one would think so. After enjoying the richness of the lobster meat, I saved the leftover bodies to use for a lobster stock. I always make my own stocks and broths from scratch and using lobster bodies is no different than using the carcass from a roasted chicken to make a chicken stock. This was a perfect time to explore and create, so I did a little research and put together a recipe for a lobster stock. I added and omitted ingredients and made a stock that resulted in one with a full lobster flavor and a hint of sweetness yet a little tartness, too. The aroma and taste made me feel like I was still at Lobster Place. I know. Some people don't like the smell of food--let alone seafood--permeating their kitchen. I do. The stock could be used for risotto, for fish sauces or as a broth for soup. Also, I would think, that it could be an excellent choice to use when steaming live lobsters. Haven't done that (yet) but will give it a try. Since this made four quarts of stock, there is certainly enough to experiment with.
